rising in israel. hospital officials now say 24 people were wounded in this morning's bus bombing in tel aviv. no one was killed, though, but since the conflict with hamas began, five israelis have been killed. more than 70 wounded. witnesses say they saw a man throw the bag into the bus, and run away, and it blew up. official from both sides at this time yesterday, they actually believe that a cease-fire between israel and hamas was close, but diplomats today, they are furiously trying to get peace talks back on track, but there is still a lot of shock. there's action newsing other the streets of tel aviv. want to go there live to talk to sarah seidner. give us the latest of this bus bomb that went off, and what is the reaction, the response to people there about the possibility of this violence ending. >> well, you know, if you talk to people on the streets who have actually come up to us as we were in the hospital coming out on to the streets right outside the hospital where at least 22 people have been treated after this bomb blast, some of those people on the bus and some of those p

's quiet. let me ask you, though, about the leaflets that are dropped from the sky from israel to basically warn civilians in gaza as a heads-up. look, we are sending a missile you're way, here's where you need to go to stay safe. >> reporter: well, we have seen two different kinds of leaflets. one is sort of a generic stay away from anything affiliated or connected with hamas. and it's a message to the israeli defense forces. and it also says we are trying to only go after hamas and not the people of gaza. what we saw yesterday, however, were leaflets being dropped on the northern part of the gaza strip with very specific instructions for people to leave those areas, how to get out of those areas and take cover in areas of gaza city which are safer. so those leaflets really did spark something of a panic exodus by people from the northern areas of the gaza strip. they flocked on donkey carts, pickup trucks, whatever kind of transportation they could find to this area. and they were put up in schools, but the schools weren't ready. there was no preparations for them to come. so they have le

this morning. it's changing by the minute out of israel. this morning israeli tv reporting three israelis were killed in rocket strikes in the southern part of the country. this comes as the israeli military has launched an aggressive new campaign to cripple hamas after repeated rocket attacks. as many as 750 this year, they say, launched from gaza into southern israel. last night president obama spoke on the phone with prime minister benjamin netanyahu acknowledging israel's right to defend itself but also urging him to not have civilian casualties. this youtube video showing an air strike yesterday killing the top military commander of hamas. it was part of a widespread campaign against targets that the israeli military says it will broaden in the coming days. this morning defense forces dropped leaflets over gaza warning residents to stay away from hamas operatives. on twitter, a clear message from israeli defense forces. quote, we recommend that no hamas operatives, whether low level or senior leaders, show their faces above ground in the days ahead. president obama also spoke last night w

for joining me. so far, 16 people in gaza and israel are dead as violence escalates in the middle east. this time it could lead to a new war in that region. over the past 24 hours, palestinian military groups say israel launched more than 75 strikes for warplanes and ships, including the strike your looking at right there, which was actually posted on youtube and twitter. this strike on a car that killed the chief of hamas' military. now the two sides have fired dozens of rockets at one another. israel claims its defending its cities, following ongoing rocket attacks by palestinian militants. israel's military says it's targeting 100 sites across gaza. i know, youf heard this all before. this time it's different. because egypt is not happy with with israel. it's already reached out to president obama and told him, we must put an end to this aggression. sarah seidner is in the region and has the latest for us this morning. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, carol. yes, the number of those who have been killed during this escalation, fighting between gaza and israels had now risen.
pretty well in terms of -- from the western perspective in working with israel. he has a lot to prove to the outside world and his own people. >> reporter: now, the obama administration is calling for calm in egypt pushing the leadership there to work together to resolve their differences peacefully and through "democratic dialogue." joe. >> everybody i think is a little stunned about the timing of all of this, dan. is the white house saying anything about whether there's some type of linkage between the timing of the gaza agreement and this move by mohamed morsi? >> reporter: they're not at all. in fact, the white house has been really pushing a lot of the comment on this through the state department which of course as i mentioned a short time ago did release that statement. i think it's really too early to tell. they are watching carefully what the developments are there and will have more comment i suspect as they get more information. >> thanks so much for that, dan lothian at the white house. we're just over two days into the israeli/hamas cease-fire along the gaza border and alr
conference since the election. and israel retaliates for rocket attacks with deadly strikes and extremist targets. now hamas is warning that the gates of hell have been opened. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> eight days after his re-election, president obama faced reporters in the midst of an unfolding scandal and with a potential economic crisis holding over his head. but he only got riled up when he responded to republican criticism of his united nations ambassador susan rice. more on that coming up. standby. but first, the president's careful responses about the investigation of this former cia chief david petraeus and on negotiations to avoid what's called the fiscal cliff. our white house correspondent jessica yellin was over at the east strip of the white house. you had a chance to speak to the president and ask him about that looming fiscal cliff. >> reporter: hi, wolf. that's right, i did. i asked the president why anyone should believe that he won't cave off of his position that he will not extend bush tax cuts for the wealthiest since he did just that in 20
, israel. would you say in israel romney would be preferred to obama? >> it's not that simple. i think they're just as divided. it's absolutely true that the israeli right, i would say large chunk of the center fear president obama and therefore would support romney not because of enthusiasm but because of the very bad relationship between the israeli right and the israeli right-winged government and the obama administration. but i think the israeli center left now identifies with obama and would like to see an obama victory and actually that will influence the election campaign in israel. we have several players who are waiting to see the result of the american elections and therefore the israeli center left and definitely left actually supports obama, which was not the case when obama began his tenure because at the time, really most of israel had reservations about him. i would say he became much more popular with the left and left of center where the right sees him in almost in demonic terms. >> you have multiple identities. you're an arab-israeli. the second, you're a news anchor in it
prime minister salam fayyad. he's in washington to attend the 2012 saban forum on u.s./israel relations. it's my understanding you were against this at first. is that true? and if so, how do you feel now? >> no. i never was against it. as a matter of fact, i was very much a part of the thinking -- >> did you think it was time now? or some time down in the future? >> given the frustrations that we palestinians have had with the political process, it has not been productive. there's no question that we needed to pursue any and all available options to us. and the international law -- with the national diplomacy. and this was one of them. the question for me all along was how best to do it. provide us with some leverage going forward because what we really want end of day is genuine state where our people can live as free people with dignity. >> at the end we were just talking in the break, does this end up helping or hurting your relationship with the united states, your pursuit of something even more tangible? >> i think it depends a lot on what is done to deal with it. and whether or no
about bombshells. this hour in gaza and parts of israel, the shells, the death, and the fear is very real. in just moments, i'm going to speak with israel's defense chief, ehud barak about these scenes and the wider implications and benghazi and beyond. political fallout from a deadly attack on americans in libya. three hearings today on capitol hill. but the star witness comes tomorrow. and that is one four-star general named david petraeus. two and a half weeks after sandy, president obama prepares to see the on going misery in parts of new york city. we are live in staten island this hour. >>> but we begin with general petraeus. no longer the top most of the echelons of national security. but not consigned to oblivion either not by any stretch. we've got two signature pieces of reporting this hour. "time" magazine is reporting that petraeus's biographer turned mistress once toyed with entering politics. she reportedly told acquaintances backing in jul that will gop "money men" had approached her about a senate run from north carolina. she says she was "tempted."

-800-medicare. >>> turning to the middle east. aljabari's car came after benjamin netanyahu warned that israel would retaliate for the increased rocket attacks from gaza. this was a first in a series of air strikes. eight so far in gaza today. i want to bring in sarah who is joining us from jerusalem with the latest on this. this was a very big deal here. i mean, he was very important symbolically and also in the military. >> absolutely. s he was head of the military wing of the merl wing. he was killed today in an air strike along side another person inside of a vehicle. we are getting conflicting reports. one says that was his bodyguard. a website from the military wing says that was, indeed, his son. it could be one in the same person, but we do know that at least six people have been killed in air strikes. we now are up to 11 air strikes over the past several hours. israel has been flying over gaza and hitting very targeted areas and looking for certain targets specifically. what we also know from israel is that they are prepared for a ground war. however, they have the boots, they have th
and have an impact and obviously israel, which is having already grave concerns as we do about, for example, movements of chemical weapons that might occur in such a chaotic atmosphere. and that could have an impact not just within syria, but on the region as a whole. i'm encouraged to see that the syrian opposition created an umbrella group that may have more cohesion than they had in the past. we're going to be talking to them, my envoys will be traveling to, you know, various meetings that are going to be taking place want international community and the opposition. we consider them a legitimate representation of the aspirations of the syrian people. we're not yet prepared to recognize them as some sort of government in exile, but we do think that it is a broad-based representative group. one of the questions that we're going to continue to press is making sure that opposition is committed to a democratic syria, an inclusive syria, a moderate syria. we have seen extremist elements insinuate themselves into the opposition. and, you know, one of the things we have to be on guard about, par
windows for at least two blocks in every direction. people heard the blast three miles away. >>> israel is ready to ramp up reaction to the rocket attacks from gaza. this is video of rockets being launched in gaza. israel's military says rockets struck overnight. benjamin netanyahu blames hamas and says israel is on the verge of escalating their military response. they fired warning shots after a shell hit an israeli military post. it's the first time israel has fired on syria since 1973. >>> syria's rebel groups may be pulling together after pressure from the u.s. and arab nations. op ligs leaders met today and agreed to form a new umbrella coalition to transition into a new syrian government. it's considered a big step in the push to oust president bashar al assad. the government is fighting to e destabilize syria. the civil war started 20 months ago. 35,000 lives may have been lost. and we want to warn you. this next report shows graphic and disturbing video ofs atrocities. some viewers may consider it very disturbing. as arwa damon reports, heinous attacks may have become too famili
